Okay, if this applies to you, I’m not picking on you, but your neighbors might be. If your Christmas wreath is still up now that we are officially in spring, it’s a sure sign that it needs to come down. If you are really attached to it, at this point, you are that much closer to it being back up! Glass half-empty, half-full, right?

One of my personal favorite looks are the use of grapevine wreaths mixed with simple flowers. After discovering an easy tutorial on Pinterest, I wanted to pass it your way.

What you’ll need:

  • Grapevine Wreath: on sale this week at Joann Fabric and Craft Stores. My 18″ wreath was only $3.59 (orig. $5.99)
  • four bundles of tulips (I got mine at Dollar Tree)
  • burlap ribbon
  • hot glue gun
  • wire cutters

I think many of us will agree that when you buy something like a lower quality tulip bundle, sometimes they look like they’ve been battered in a storm already. A fun tip: put a small dab of hot glue at the base of the petal, stick it to a neighboring petal and reform the tulip. Works like a charm!

For this craft, you will need to cut the tulips from the bundle so each stem is a different length. You will then pop the head of the tulip off, slide the green leaf off and then put the bloom back on the stem. I highly recommend putting a dab of hot glue at the base of the stem where the flower is reattached. Especially if your wreath is out in the element=-

  • From this point on, I highly recommend following the simple Pinterest instructions. Here is our final wreath. Feel free to add other spring flowers into the mix.
